the state that could decide this election. is president obama losing his lead in ohio or not? plus, the politics of demographics and race. >>> and we're tracking a super storm that could wallop the northeast. the forecast for this thing really is frankenstorm. it could influence voting in a few key states. chad myers with the latest. ♪ [ male announcer ] this is karen and jeremiah. they don't know it yet, but they're gonna fall in love, get married, have a couple of kids, [ children laughing ] move to the country, and live a long, happy life together where they almost never fight about money. [ dog barks ] because right after they get married, they'll find some retirement people who are paid on salary, not commission. they'll get straightforward guidance and be able to focus on other things, like each other, which isn't rocket science. it's just common sense. from td ameritrade. it's just common sense. see lioutdoors, or in.ight. transitions® lenses automatically filter just the right amount of light. so you see everything the way it's meant to be seen. maybe even a little bette

. this year, they're holding obama up is making him look pretty good in ohio is that he's got these working class white voters that he lacks in some other states. >> well, it is interesting, aaron, when i was talking to both the romney and obama campaign folks here in columbus yesterday, they said they're going to be watching not suburban columbus, but cuyahoga county and a lot of those working class voters, of course, also african-american voters, but they're looking at the margins in some of those places like barack obama talk about the importance of those votes. >> let me point out about cuyahoga county. president obama beat john mccain in 2008 in cuyahoga county by a larger number of votes and he won the entire state. so it's really important for cuyahoga county. but a very important place for him to run up those margins. we will see bill clinton campaign up in akron, ohio, even further north and east of cleveland. a high point in this state. >> what we talk a lot about is what we add journalists and the talking class talk about what regular americans, ohio and they're talking about. of
. presidentpresident obama is in ohio. he has a couple of elbows of his own. >> you have folks at the jeep plant who is have been calling their employers worried, is it true are our jobs being shipped to china? and the reason why they're making these calls is because governor romney has been running an ad that says so. except it's not true. everybody knows it's not true. the car companies themselves have told governor romney to knock it off. >> cenk: all right, that's pretty good. you know when he gets excited his voice goes up a little--not true. but it isn't true. both candidates have been crisscrossing the country especially president obama. i get the sense that he might go to ohio a couple of times. tell me about it. >> but a look at the rest of his campaign schedule makes the buckeye state look like an airline hub for air force hub through election day. for his part mitt romney is not only focusing on ohio but also hoping to win over wisconsin. he's looking to broaden the battleground map campaigning sunday and visiting new hampshire twice, the smallest swing state that may be edging in mr. rom

[ cheering ] >> eliot: president obama in ohio in his clogging argument paints himself as son who will do whatever it takes for the american people. >> obama: we've made real progress, but we are here today because we know we've got more work to do. you may not agree with every decision i've made. you may be frustrated sometimes by the pace of change. but you know what i believe. you know where i stand. you know i tell the truth. you know that i i'll fight for you and your families every single day as hard as how. you know that. [ cheering ] >> eliot: i love that passion. for more on the last days of the presidential campaign, let's bring in michael tomasky special correspondent for "newsweek" and the daily beast who wrote this week's cover for "newsweek" "can obama close the deal?" >> thank you. >> eliot: is anyone tuning in any more after months and moss of this rhetoric. >> we are exhausted but i did see one hole in ohio that showed obama ahead by three points, but there was still 7% or 8% still undecided in this poll in ohio. i guess some people are still out there scratching their ch

are selecting romney on the machine in marion, ohio and it shows up obama. have you looked into these problems? are you concerned about 30 some days with voting in ohio? >> we have probably the most bipartisan, sophisticated count can operation that you can find in the country. there is always two republicans overlooking the shoulders of two democrats and vice versa. i think that we had planned for this. we are prepared to provide the security. the secretary of state has been on this but -- i don't know how they do n it in the other states. they watch one another like a hawk. frankly that is the way it ought to be. >> sean: let's talk -- look, according to every other person, we all know that no republican has made it to the white house without winning the great state of ohio will. you know the state as well as anybody. i was watching meet the press and you said with confidence you feel that the state has moved towards governor romney. short of the rasmussen poll, a lot of polls show the president is leading. why do you feel so confident? >> you have all kinds of polls. i am convinced that god
. as president obama points out, mitt romney's plan for the auto workers of ohio would have actually sent jobs to china. >> he's hoping you remember that it's likely to create jobs in china because is shifts them overseas instead of here in the united states of america. if mitt romney had been president when the auto industry was on the verge of collapse, we might not have an automobile industry today. we'd be buying cars from china instead of selling to them. >> mitt romney's path to the presidency is impossible without ohio's 18 electoral votes. right now winning ohio is not looking good for romney. six ohio polls were released this week. five of them have president obama leading. one is tied. president obama's average lead in ohio is 2.3 points. that's a big lead, seriously. now families in northern ohio have not forgotten what the rescue of the automobile industry did for their state. one in eight ohio jobs are about the automobile industry. this is why mitt romney is doing everything he possibly can to down play the impact of the auto rescue. his political director says the obama campaign
how to pull off a win in the key battleground state of ohio and break through president obama's so-called midwestern firewall. his campaign is ensure shurg allies there is still a clear path to skrivictory. peter, tell us about this memo. >> reporter: the romney campaign is facing serious questions about the electoral college math. people in ohio here generally think obama has a slight lead also in wisconsin and iowa and nevada. three of those four would give obama the presidency. so the romney campaign knows they're going to have to answer questions about this on the sunday shows tomorrow and on the final days of the race. they circulated a confidential memo to top republican leaders and surrogates. we got our hands on it. this is what they're saying. they're saying they're putting the obama campaign on defense. quote, mitt romney is up or tied with obama in every key battleground state forcing obama on defense in states he won by double digits in 2008 like wisconsin, iowa, michigan, minnesota, and pennsylvania. with the campaigns even on the ground and in early vote, gop enthusia
angry white males in ohio? >> this has been the real problem of the romney campaign, tot while obama's reach whites in general and white males in particular has been really less than mediocre, the fact is that in ohio, optimism and confidence of ohio has absolutely skyrocketed. quinnipiac showed this week that 52% of people in ohio think things getting better, only 17% think they're getting worse -- >> they are getting better in ohio. >> they are getting better in ohio, there is good news, and white males understand that the auto bailout is crucial and indispensable to this news. >> we will get to climate change next. >> for us to say that this was once in a generation and will not happen again, i think it would be shortsighted. climate change is a reality, extreme weather is a reality. >> new york governor andrew cuomo is also saying that 100- year storms are coming every two years. hate to bring his name off, but al gore predicted this. >> sure did. >> isn't this another demonstration of how antiquated our infrastructure is? they have the sea barriers and the netherlands. >> one do

of all the real clear politics average in ohio being 2.3 percent in president obama's favor. as of this morning it is 1.9 percent. that is because the polls are closing. the latest poll was this morning in ohio by the ohio newspapers, showing the race is a dead heat. that is certainly what i feel. i feel like the momentum is on our side. i have been at six rallies the last week and at a dozen victory centers and the energy and enthusiasm is on our side this year. it is interesting to watch but we were down probably five or ten points before the debates and after the debates, well, we are dead even. >>chris: senator warner your state is in the path of huge storm, if you lose power could it affect early voting or an effect on election day? >>guest: well, chris, the governor has declared a state of emergency. i think we don't have an extensive as early voting in virginia as other states but i think in terms of how the president looks, it looks good. the "washington post" has a poll with the president above the magic 50 percent mark, 51-47 percent, and he had a great rally in ri

possible, but again, the key for president obama is going to be ohio. you have florida and virginia to romney. he's at 248, obama 243. colorado leaning toward romney. now give obama new hampshire where he is favored, wisconsin where he is favored. give him iowa, just 263. then we are looking on election night to that all-important state of ohio, obama at 281. if you gave that to romney, look at that, 275-263. that's why it is so key. what is the one state that could keep us up at night? let's look out west. we've been giving it to mitt romney colorado. watch what happens if we give romney florida, virginia, ohio. he's at 266. president obama, what does he need? new hampshire, wisconsin, iowa, all places he's favored and look at the one place that's keeping us up at night, western state, mountain time zone, late closing time, 266, 263, nine electoral votes there could swing it one way or the other. let's look at one last scenario where we could have ourselves a tie. president obama out west is favored in nevada. let's say we give it to mitt romney. it's only a three-point lead in our

about automobile rescue. that is former governor ted strickland of ohio. an obama 2012 campaign co-chair. and also with us tonight is congressman tim ryan of ohio. gentlemen, great to have you with us. governor, you first. i can only think that this is a complete disservice to the people of ohio to go out in front of a crowd and erroneously put out information that cuts right to the fabric of what this election is all about and that's jobs. what's your reaction? >> my reaction is that mitt romney is a desperate man. he knows he's losing ohio. if he loses ohio, he's losing the election. for him to do what he did is despicable. think of the angst that those workers felt when they heard him say that. obviously, it showed a lack of judgment and a lack of truthfulness. this man is not ready to be the president of the united states of america. he is -- as jon huntsman said during the primary season, he is like a well-oiled weather vane. you never know where mitt romney is going to be on any issue on any day. this is just the latest example of his desperation in trying to reach the ohio v
obama cancel trips to virginia and ohio. how much has the hurricane hindered your efforts there? >> we have to see how it goes. of course, we're all hoping that the hurricane doesn't have huge consequences for people's safety. we have taken every precaution that we possibly can. the president took down a couple of stops to stay at the white house to monitor the situation. of course, he's given every resource to state and local partners to ensure people are safe. we have to see how this goes. we're all hoping for the best and for the people's safety. >> okay, stephanie cutter, thank you very much. >>> let's turn to newt gingrich. mr. speaker, thanks for coming in this morning. you just heard stephanie cutter there. she believes their campaign is ahead in ohio. your response? >> well, i think you put your finger on it with "the des moines register," here's a newspaper that hasn't endorsed a republican in 40 years, now they were for obama four years ago, they switched. the fact is, the paper in florida this morning did the same thing, pro-obama, it switched. in ohio, we clearly have gaine
a dead even race in ohio. five points for obama. when they last tested here a number of weeks ago. shows momentum on romney side. the question is does he have momentum to push him perhaps 270. >> bret: quick answer of impact of the storm, hurricane sandy and what it means for the race? >> could it mean -- i think it's freezing the race. it's hard for either romney or obama to break through with new, with some new initiative while everybody is focused on sandy. i don't think it affects the turnout. >> bret: karl? >> it could effect turn-out. people affected by this; particularly, people unable to cope with it might be less likely to turn out. let's see when the storm hits. when it passes. if people can put themselves back together. the other thing is it will push the campaigning further west. we will see more appearances in iowa, colorado, nevada, wisconsin, western ohio than we would have seen otherwise in fewer appearances and florida. fewer appearances in places like virginia and pennsylvania. eastern ohio. >> bret: last thing, quickly. we had an ipad app that people can put in their m
. >> who is he leading with in ohio? >> president obama is leading with women. he's leading with centrist business 0 points. losing independents by two points. losing white men by a considerable margin. leading with folks who make undered 50 e$50,000 a year. so the national themes are evident here in ohio. >> when you say independents and centrists, you're describing them as two separate things. a lot of viewers think independents means centrists. >> in the past, they have. one of the fascinating things about this election, the impact of the tea party on independent voters, it moved them to the right. so you see independents edging toward mitt romney. president obama has had a decided edge among moderates. fascinating new division in the electorate that we're seeing playing out. >> stay here. we'll talk more about this. brianna keeler is in milwaukee. the president will be there later today. three days out. this is the final chance for the president to make his case to voters. what's the final message going to be? >> reporter: he's countering, ali, mitt romney's message where he is talkin
